Congratulations to Dr. Jeff Horsburgh who was recently promoted to Full Professor!

Dr. Horsburgh has been at the UWRL since 2001, when he started working full-time as a research engineer. After receiving his PhD, Dr. Horsburgh joined the faculty as a Research Assistant Professor in 2009 and started his tenure track position in 2013. His research focuses on Hydroinformatics and developing new technology to increase the understanding of watershed and environmental processes. He bridges hydrologic data with cyberinfrastructure and models.

Dr. Horsburgh has taught Geographic Information Systems (GIS), programming and numerical methods, and is currently teaching a graduate-level Hydroinformatics course in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department. This course will be offered again in Spring 2025. His expertise in Hydroinformatics and water data management has become an important pillar of CIROH — a research consortium committed to advancing water prediction and building resilience to water-related challenges.

Dr. Horsburgh is a key professor and researcher at the UWRL, and his promotion reflects his hard work and commitment to the field. Read about some of his recent work on residential water use metering in our research briefs: https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/water_research_briefs/.
